64 bit Thunar 'Send to mail recipient' fails, needs i386 library

Bug Description

Running 64-bit Xubuntu 12.04 alpha 2 in a Virtualbox 4.1.8 machine.
Thunar 1.2.3-2build1

Choosing a file to send from Thunar to a mail recipient using the context menu.
Get the error box :
Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/Thunar/thunar-sendto-email" (No such file or directory).

Executing a 'locate thunar-sendto-email', we find that the program is in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/Thunar/

So Thunar is not looking in the right directory.

Workaround: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu
Works perfectly to fool the faulty file manager into finding the tool.

Similar to the bug described at ubuntuforums.org: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1878018 although this seems to have been fixed in the latest Xfce packaged with xubuntu 12.04

This bug was fixed in the package thunar - 1.2.3-3ubuntu1

thunar (1.2.3-3ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Resync with Debian unstable, bugs fixed:
    - 64 bit Thunar 'Send to mail recipient' fails, needs i386 library.
      lp: #931650
  * debian/patches/02_fix-link-gmodule.patch: added, explicitly link with
    gmodule, fix FTBFS.
  * debian/control: b-dep on xfce4-dev-tools, libtool, automake, autoconf and
    gtk-doc-tools, needed by xdt-autogen.
  * debian/rules: run xdt-autogen before configure, needed by the patch.

thunar (1.2.3-3) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Lionel Le Folgoc ]
  * debian/rules, debian/thunar.install, debian/thunar-data.install: move
    thunar-sendto-email.desktop from thunar-data to thunar, as the path
    generated for the thunar-sendto-email binary is architecture-dependent.
                                                                Closes: #657807
  * debian/control: thunar breaks and replaces thunar-data (<< 1.2.3-3).

  [ Yves-Alexis Perez ]
  * debian/control:
    - debhelper build-dep bumped to 9.
